Nope. Please don't confuse crypt(3) with crypt(1) [in "man page"
notation, the C library function crypt() and the user-program crypt.]
The latter is a modified Enigma-style rotor cipher, see also the Crypt
Breaker's Workshop. debian does not include a package for crypt(1)
[and if it did, it should be in the "games" section...]
